(from the show ¨Haunted Womb Tour¨)
Translation, Ian Christopher Goodman
My kidney, twinkling and radiant,
floats in a crimson sky.
Its shadow shimmers on the ripples of the sea.
Such a spurt of blood!
Red sprinkles rise slowly and gracefully
from the ground.
My dismembered body
is washed on the beach by the sunset.
Golden vapours embalm the space.
O Kidney in the heavens,
by your will may my body be purified.
(In turn, a stray child on a southern island
becomes a mother, and Virgin Mary’s lullaby
echoes in the coconut grove.)
